(sorry for botched previous post)

Hi all,

I've a old (4 years) and busy repository. It's now several 100 thousand files and around 3 TB for the backup.

Yesterday I discovered that the user cannot recover a deleted file any more. But the user can recover the directory two levels above and from there extract the desired file.

That seems quite odd to me and I wonder what can lead to that situation? I suspect that it can be due to the fact that the directory was deleted, the deletion recorded by riff-backup and later the directory got recreated/restored.

Can someone confirm or infirm the hypothesis? Is there a way to prove it or disprove it?
